***each copy signed by the author on front end paper 'Best Wishes, Sandy Thorne'*** Feel like a trip down memory lane? Need a laugh? If you've ever pinched fruit, pelted rocks on people's roofs, talked about hairs in grade seven or been expelled from school, this hilarious memoir will be your cup of tea. If you didn't do any of those things but wanted to, this book is also for you. Growing up wild and free in the golden era of the 1950s and '60s in rural Queensland, Sandy Thorne was constantly in more strife than Flash Gordon. Her bum frequently glowed as crimson as a baboon's after thoroughly deserved thrashings from her long-suffering mother. With a philandering father drifting in and out of her home life and a collection of very loyal animals as her constant companions, Sandy learnt how to talk her way out of many sticky situations, emerging with an ability to laugh at herself, and to make other people laugh. At fourteen, she decided it was time to see what else was on offer and ran away to be a jillaroo. But that's the next instalment . . . About the Author: Sandy Thorne has been called many things: Australia's Pam Ayres, our youngest jillaroo, our bush poet laureate, and probably some names that are unprintable. She has self-published books with great success, mainly in the '80s and '90s. These include I've Met Some Bloody Wags and Laugh Yer Guts Out. She appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, famously knocking the top off a stubby with her teeth. She's a born storyteller. At 60, Sandy shares her life with a truly good, decent man, working on the land back at Lightning Ridge. And she's still being funny.
